Disruptive showers and thunderstorms around Boston will be on the rise through midweek.

After being spotty over the weekend, thunderstorm coverage will gradually increase Monday through Tuesday. Humid air pour into eastern New England is setting the stage for the thunderstorms.

Both days, the greatest potential for the thunderstorms to turn severe and drop flooding downpours will lie just to the west. Regardless, any thunderstorm threatens to slow down travelers and disrupt outdoor activities.

Tuesday night and possibly into Wednesday is when more numerous and drenching thunderstorms will track across Boston. meteorologists will be monitoring the potential for flash flooding, which would unfold if the drenching thunderstorms are slow moving, repeat over the same area and/or track over areas that first become soaked by the storms earlier in the week.

The storminess will finally give way to drier and less humid weather by Thursday.

Since the core of the September-like air plunging into the Midwest will lose some of its punch before reaching the I-95 corridor, Thursday's high will still be close to the typical mid-July high of 82 F.
